When I was a young man I loved a girl

And I wrote mournful songs I wished she would hear me sing
And they were filled with promises I hoped she'd believe

See, I believed I had laid out my yearning heart
In such detail there could not be deceit

But that was the song of a young man
My heart was a burning ember that kept me awake all night
Whenever you didn't come ‘round I'd dream of holding you tight
But those were the dreams, the dreams of a young man

And if you heard the song I sang to you

I wish you luck, honey I wish you other love
And if you started thinking I was the one

Darling I'm telling you, I've moved on

Girl I tell you I do deeply sympathize

But you left me hanging for too long

And I’ve come to realize

That was just the song of a young man

Yeah my heart was so tender

But I was so unwise

I didn't know heads from tails and that's why I've come to realize
Don't go believing the songs of a young man
